A perfect day

I have been challenged by The Prompt launched by MumTurnedMom and made to ponder on what would be the perfect day for me, now that I am a stay-at-home mum, looking after two young children…

As much as I love my little ones, since I haven’t had a night of unbroken sleep in what feels like ages, I would start my perfect day in a lovely hotel, with a big, fat lie-in! Followed by a leisurely shower, without any small hands knocking impatiently on the door. I will then descend for a luxuriously lazy home-cooked breakfast downstairs and enjoy reading the morning newspaper over hot coffee and croissant…

Once my body replenished, I would go in search of replenishment for my soul: maybe a bit of solo shopping of clothes for myself (for a change!), perusing the latest books and magazines in a book store, having a look at home decor items in antique shops and buying myself a notebook where I could keep track of my blogging goals,plans and ideas.

After a light lunch in town, I would be tempted to go back to my hotel for an afternoon nap and later that afternoon I would maybe go and watch a girly movie in the cinema. Over nachos and gooey cream cheese…Then I would challenge myself to find a small and quirky Italian restaurant that makes its own pasta and have a big bowl of it with red sauce for dinner.

My evening would be spent in my PJs, in front of the iPad, catching up with the Born Every Minute series I missed this season, stuffing my face with pretzels and sobbing over touching moments.

I would then blissfully go to sleep around 9 p.m., knowing that reality awaits me the following day.

For me, this is only a fantasy at the moment, I will probably have to wait for a good few years until Georgie is old enough to go for sleepover with friends until this becomes reality.What is your perfect day and what would you do with yourself if you had 24 hours to spare?

    That sounds like such a lovely day! Are you taking any bookings? Mel #ThePrompt

    • Yes, actually I got a couple of hours to myself since George was born the same day as mum took him for a walk and Alex took Emma shopping. Bliss…xx

  2. I’m glad I’m not the only one who kind of put myself first when it came to imagining a perfect day Oana! It doesn’t mean we don’t love our children, its just that, when you come right down to it perfection has to involve some no compromise me time!! (Surely!!) (and then a happy mummy = happy children, so its like spreading the love really!) #ThePrompt

  3. I am rather lucky to get days to myself now and again as Grace goes off to her fathers. I think my perfect day would be going on a shopping spree where I wasn’t limited on funds and everything fitted perfectly! Thank you for linking to PoCoLo 🙂 x
